Music links In the early '90 and into the '00s I played in numerous punk bands in Berkeley, Oakland, and San Francisco. Lately (the last 10 years or so) I've been pretty active as a performing and recording autoharpist and double bassist, leaning towards the quiet avant garde end of the improvisation spectrum (whatever that means). I also study Sarangi with Smt. Aruna Narayan in Toronto. Here's a small list of links related to musicians or music that I like.
